Como-Pickton school will have several new faces when school resumes in August. District administrators have been working diligently to fill openings from retirements and the usual annual turnover.
The district hired a maintenance director and HVAC technician, a special education coordinator, two fourth grade teachers, a third grade teacher, a fifth grade teacher and an algebra I teacher at their June school board meeting.
Three of the teachers hired will be in their first year of teaching. Accepting the algebra I position is Dustin Flowers, a former C-P graduate. Ken Miller is the district’s new maintenance director and Tommy Welch from Quitman will fill the HVAC vacancy created when the person in that position accepted at job in Yantis. The special education coordinator comes to the district from Quitman.
The district had at least six staff members who retired at the end of the 2012-2013 school year. In addition, Karla Jacks, secretary, has moved from the elementary campus to the administration building to serve as administrative assistant.
School trustees accepted resignations from two staff members, a sixth grade teacher and the technology director. They are still looking for an eighth grade English teacher/coach, district technology director, and a baseball coach and science teacher.
